Underbelly (Houston, TX)
It’s that time of the year again, when we all gather from around Houston and celebrate March aka #birthmonth. With 2012 just starting, numerous restaurants were opening up. I hoped conat would be open by this time so I could relive my 30th birthday celebration as much as I did last year, however they are still in the permitting stages and that just wasn’t going to happen. This left me with finding a place where we could get loud and drink it up and enjoy ourselves with some damn good food. With Uchi Houston as one of my top contenders, they had my favorite sake and a great party room and the food was loved by all. It’s a damn shame the reservation managers couldn’t get a grasp of what needed to happen to move on. A call from a new reservation manager a week prior to my party sealed the deal. I cancelled my reservation and scrambled to make a call to Underbelly to have a meat party.
16 top. One waiter named Chris. An extremely talented kitchen.
First thing first, Chris Shepherd calls me into the kitchen to shotgun a Karbach Weisse Versa Wheat beer with the kitchen crew. The surrounding tables were asking us what the hell was going on. I loved every second of it. This had me extremely excited for the food. Chris and I were already one high abv beer deep from Hay Merchant and the drinking continued. Jester King beer flowed and flowed, then the meat party started.
the food? excellent, loved every minute of the beer and meat party, one of my favorite new restaurants in the houston area.
